Fence with unusual material;

*Can you guess what these bottle (earthen ware) were for *

These were used as sulfuric acid bottle (container).
And the fence itself is called Bottle fence "瓶垣, bin-gaki" in Japanese.
It was funny that until recently I never knew next city where is my husband's birth city used to have thriving ceramic engineering  (pottery industry).  "sulfuric acid, to refine gold and silver"

This Miyoshi residentce is designated as Heritage of Industrial Modernization.
The board explains this fence 'made from almost 100 years old bottle with this pottery' represent its history of the industry in this city. And the pictures below shows the very old kiln no longer used.  

The entrance and fence of the residence after go up along the bottle fence.

      The monument of the bottle located where we cross this bridge. 
           And some are ornaments along side the road.

Thank you very much for stopping by;
